A former Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko has said he has plans to make the New Patriotic Party (NPP) the dominant force in the Political space so that the party can win election after election.
Adding his voice to the breaking the 8 mantra of the NPP, Mr Agyarko who is believed to have a presidential ambition, questioned why the ambition has been limited to only breaking the 8.
The plan, he said must focus on sustained political office.
Addressing delegates of the NPP in the Eastern Region on Sunday October 17, he said “We talk about breaking the 8, which 8. Breaking which 8? So, after breaking the 8 what next, are we handing over the NDC, absolutely not. My intention for this party is to become the dominant political force in our political space so that there will be no challenger to the NPP in any election that we go so that every election, election after election, we will continue to stay in power.
He further told the delegates that the NPP suffered a lot in the 2020 elections although even though victory came their way.
He told delegates of the NPP in the Eastern Region on Sunday October 17 that the numbers of the president dropped drastically in the 2020 polls as compared to what he had in the 2016 elections.
Similarly, he said, the NPP squandered the overwhelming majority it controlled in Parliament and is now on the same level with the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Going into the 2024 elections, Mr Agyarko told the party supporters and delegates especially in the Eastern Region not to fail the NPP.
“We struggled in the elections, in one election we lost 32 seats, in one election the presidential majority dropped by 500,000 votes. That is a clear indication that we have a lot of work to do. The work depends on Eastern Region , we have to ensure that this doesn’t not occur in the next election.
He further assured that he will work to ensure the party continues to stay in office election after election.
“Whatever support Boakye Agyarko will need to give, I will do just that,” he said.
